Thought Day 20 of 2015: Learn to Say “No”


Saying “no” doesn’t mean you are rude, mean or selfish.  These ideas make it hard to say no. Letting go of these ideas can help us to say no when we really mean it.

We are all mature adults and capable of making our own choices and we all know the difference between right and wrong.  Therefore, “no” should not be a word we are afraid to use. Rather, it should be something we decide based on our own preferences.

You owe no one explanation for not wanting to help, or attend an event, or go out. The word “yes” can be costly and time-consuming. Only use it when you actually want to. Otherwise, don’t waste your time on situations that deserve the word “no.”
